KENNY 2.0 --- THE JOBS PITCH
Republican candidate for Governor Kenny Hulshof announces a jobs plan that he says would encourage businesses to add employees as soon as it's implemented.
It's 6 percent payroll rebate for adding new employees. He'll tap $265 million from Missouri's "Rainy Day Fund" to pay for it. He says it's a better use of the state's money than reinstating the Medicaid cuts, as his opponent Jay Nixon has proposed.
At press event, Hulshof is his usual likable self, joking with reporters, seemingly upbeat but at ease, rattling off specifics and demonstrating command on the issue. Also, makes most convincing economic pitch yet for why voters should give him a second look.
Now, will it matter?
